Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you. If there are parts of your lips or smile you’re unhappy with, but you don’t want the extra volume that comes with dermal filler injections, there are still great options for you. Call Lux: A Medical Spa in Bluffton, SC to discuss how Xeomin could give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
What Is Xeomin?
Xeomin is a purified form of botulinum toxin A and belongs to a family of injectables called neuromodulators. Neuromodulators can disrupt the way nerves communicate with muscles. This is most commonly used in the cosmetic world by helping to diminish or eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Where Can Xeomin Be Used?
Neuromodulators are the number one requested and performed cosmetic treatment in the world for good reason—they work.
Lines and Wrinkles
This is the main use for this treatment because it effectively reduces or eliminates the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles caused by our repeated expressions. When we use the muscles on our faces to make the same expressions over and over, the lines on our skin can remain even when our faces are at rest.
When injected strategically and skillfully, Xeomin can cause the muscles underneath our wrinkles to relax. As the muscles relax, the skin on top smooths out and the lines and wrinkles fade from view. This treatment works effectively on:
- Frown lines
- Forehead wrinkles
- Crow’s feet
- Bunny lines
Can It Be Used for Lips?
This treatment can certainly be used on the lips, but not the way fillers are used. This won’t be injected to add volume, but it can bring positive results to other areas of concern around the mouth, lips, and smile.
If you have down-turned corners of the mouth naturally or because of the aging process, it can make you look unhappy when you’re not and bring the entire appearance of your face down. When injected into the muscles that drag that part of your mouth down, those corners turn up and you immediately look happier and younger.
Do you look at pictures of yourself and wish you didn’t show so much of your gums when you smile? Does it look like your upper lip disappears when you laugh? This treatment can help. By placing small injections into the muscles that pull your lips too far up, the muscle relaxes just enough to stop your lips at the top of your teeth.
You’ll still be able to smile, but it will look proportionate and all people will see is you and your pearly whites. This can even give the illusion of a fuller lip because the muscle isn’t pulling so hard that it folds your upper lip, causing it to disappear from view.
